1 Moving transportation into the future Strategic Highway Research Program

2 What is SHRP 2? Congressionally authorized research program Over $2oo million in strategic research Potential of $350 million for product implementation Collaboration of AASHTO, TRB, FHWA, NHTSA

3 Renewal: Rapid and less disruptive methods for long-lasting facilities Capacity: Collaborating to deliver needed projects faster Reliability: Operating a more reliable, less-congested system Generating Innovative Methods and Tools in Four Areas Safety: Reducing crashes, saving lives

4 Why is SHRP 2 Important? Simply put: It has the potential to change the way state departments of transportation do business By providing new research-based tools and innovative approaches that will better enable us to stretch state and federal investments of taxpayer dollars And new thinking about what we do and how we do it

5 State DOTs, other users and stakeholders Generating 130+ Products Over 100 studies


7 Delivering the products Research completed in 2013 Transitioning… From Research to Implementation From Researchers to Users From Research world to Real World


9 AASHTOs Focus Develop programs to help States implement SHRP 2 Products Ongoing activities Identify Champions Demo Projects Survey States, Understand the need Gather Implementation Data Develop Communications Plan Webinars, Implementation plans Engage AASHTO Committees

10 30 Renewal Projects SHRP 2 R04A- Innovative Bridge Designs for Rapid Renewal (Bridge Demonstration Project SHRP 2 R06A - Plan for Developing High Speed, Nondestructive Testing Procedures for both Design Evaluation and Construction Inspection Nondestructive Testing to Identify Concrete Bridge Deck Deterioration Evaluating Applications of Field Spectroscopy Devices to Fingerprint Commonly Used Construction Materials Using Both Infrared and High-Speed Ground Penetrating Radar for Uniformity Measurements on New HMA Layers Nondestructive Testing to Identify Delaminations between HMA Layers Real-Time Smoothness Measurements on Portland Cement Concrete Pavements During Construction Development of Continuous Deflection Device for PCC Joints High-Speed Nondestructive Testing Methods for DefectiveTunnel Linings SHRP 2 R15 - Strategies for Integrating Utility and Transportation Agency Priorities in Highway Renewal Projects SHRP 2 R16 - Railroad-DOT Institutional Mitigation Strategies SHRP 2 R26 - Preservation Approaches for High-Traffic-Volume Roadways

11 Be a Lead State! Watch for pilot projects and demonstration opportunities Participate in focus groups, surveys and other product research Engage in peer-to-peer exchange programs Contact Groups within AASHTO Subscribe to SHRP 2 news at Stay informed and stay tuned!
